Alice journeys through a real wonderland in Theatre-Hikes’ “Alice in Wonderland,” 1 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, July 5-27, at the Morton Arboretum, 4100 Illinois Rte. 53, Lisle. The actors and audience walk to different areas of the Arboretum for each scene.
“This production being outside is going to add a lot to telling our story,” said Madalyn Mattsey who plays the title character. The setting comes into play immediately when Alice falls down a rabbit hole into a beautiful garden.
Alice is ready for adventure, Mattsey indicated, noting that she is “an extremely inquisitive child. She’s brought up in a proper English family and she is thrown into a crazy, crazy world.”
The actor thinks this classic tale remains popular because, “At the heart of it, it’s about a little girl growing up and making sense of the world. We can all relate to that.”
Tickets are $20, $10 for children; $10 and $5 for members.
